Artist Cee Lo Green deleted his Twitter account after reportedly making controversial comments about rape, then thanking God for "exoneration, fairness, and freedom" and asking for the public's forgiveness.
"@Twinklecrepe @dELYSEious @RaavynnDigital if someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH implies consent. When someone [breaks] in a home there is broken glass where is your plausible proof anyone was raped," the rapper tweeted.
Green was in court the day before to plead "no contest" to slipping a woman ecstasy without her consent in 2012. The woman previously told authorities that she woke up in the performer's bed and was unable to remember what happened the night before. Green's lawyer told the court that the two had had "consensual relations." He has not been charged with any type of assault or abuse in the case. more >>

Economist Milton Friedman said "The economic race should not be arranged so everyone arrives at the finish line at the same time but so that everyone starts at the starting line at the same time."
Those on the left and the right have always contended whether economic outcomes for any given set of individuals is the business of government. But few, on the left or right, dispute that government should work to assure that every American starts the game under fair conditions.
It's the latter point, fairness at the beginning of the game that defines the motivation behind Republican Congressman Paul Ryan's vast and sweeping new set of ideas for taking on poverty in our nation. more >>
Investigative journalist and GotNews.com founder Charles C. Johnson alleged in a lawsuit filed in the St. Louis County Circuit Court last Thursday that 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was recently shot dead by police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, was charged with murder as a juvenile and is now trying to force the court to release his juvenile records.
The lawsuit, filed by attorney John C. Burns on Johnson's behalf, is highlighted in a report on GotNews.com in which Johnson states that he was informed by law enforcement sources that Brown had an extensive juvenile criminal record. The only reason Brown had a clean criminal history at the time of his death, as widely reported by various news media, is because he had only recently turned 18 on May 20 a few months earlier.
He explained that to verify the information supplied to him by law enforcement officials he filed a request for Michael Brown's juvenile records, but the request was denied. more >>
